Martin Shkreli to forfeit $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album, judge rules (as in, the judge is awesome)
"Who killed Jason Blossom?"

“Fatal Flying Guillotine chops off your fucking head”

In the continuing saga that is Martin Shkreli’s fall from grace, a judge has just ruled that the “most hated man in America” must forfeit $7.36 million in assets. To reach that amount, the infamous pharma bro is relinquishing a lovely Picasso, Lil Wayne’s unreleased album Tha Carter V, and his copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, an ultra-rare pressing of the album — in fact, the only one in existence — that Shkreli won at an auction for the cooool price of $2 million. Dollar dollar bills, y’all.

Shkreli gained internet notoriety after deciding to raise the price of cancer drugs by 5,000% through his pharmaceutical company, signalling loud and clear to the world that “Cash Rules Everything Around Me.” Shkreli, who seemed to have purchased the album on a lark, relished its possession, trolling rap fans worldwide by wondering if he should destroy the album or place it in a difficult to access location “so that people have to make a spiritual quest to listen.” Hopefully he at least listened to the damn thing.

Broseph’s crimes have caused over $10 million in financial losses, and he has since been convicted of securities fraud. Last year, his lawyer said the downtown douchebag was completely cash-broke, though he’s also said that Shaolin is “probably worthless.” Obviously, he hasn’t heard a good Ghostface flow in a while.
